The Experiencing of Democracy and Progressive Education : A Constructivist Approach to Mathematics : A Workshop for Teachers

Preminda Langer


The purpose of this paper is to develop a series of math workshops for Nursery and Kindergarten teachers in India. In these workshops the teachers will experience genuine problem solving, through group work based on social learning and cooperative education. It is my hope that these teachers will find joy and power through this process, and will begin their personal search on how to construct their own curriculum for progressive education, and thereby lead their students to experience learning developed around a democratic system.
